On The Road Again

Sometimes I shake my head in disbelief that I actually paid for something. This is one of those things. I paid a whole 25 cents for this stupid tape. 25 cents bought me a minute and thirty seven seconds worth of dread.


It's amazing how much this cassette tells me about the people who recorded it. First of all, it was recorded in Singing Sensations Recording Studio in Branson, Missouri, as the label states. Second, the artist "Embassy Tours" is a travel agency here in Winnipeg. Third, the group name "The Singing Sexagenarians"; a sexagenarians is someone between the age of 60 and 70 years old.

So there you have it. This is a recording by a group of tone-deaf, crusty old people who went on a cruise to Branson, Missouri to make this recording, only to have it chucked into a box of shitty tapes at a yard sale.

And of course, I'm the one who got suckered out of a quarter.

The announcement at the beginning really sets it up for utter failure.
